Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2003-01-20 05:18:29 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
while '%packages --resolvedeps' is not in The Official Red Hat Linux 7.2
Customization Guide that is included in the AS2.1 docs CD, the file sample.ks of
that CD contains 

### Automatically resolve dependences
#%packages --resolvedeps

using the option makes anaconda crash with signal 11.

If the option is not to be used (as it is absent from the docs), please file as
a documentation bug so that the sample kickstart file reflects the
distribution's abilities.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-21 17:54:35 UTC
--resolvedeps wasn't added as a supported option until Red Hat Linux 7.3.  Where
is the sample ks.cfg that you're looking at?

Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2003-01-22 13:48:46 UTC
"the file sample.ks of that CD contains"

where 'that CD' is the AS 2.1 documentation CD.

So this is a docs bug.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-22 16:48:45 UTC
(not really the IG, but that's the only docs component for AS)
Tammy -- did this just get pulled in somehow as a process skew as the pensacola
and hampton cds were being generated at the same time?

Comment 5 Tammy Fox 2003-01-22 17:57:09 UTC
Yep. At first the sampleks CVS module only contained one file that
was exported from CVS when the Docs CD was built. I have since changed
it to have a dir per product so it doesn't happen again. The translated
Docs CDs for AS are correct FWIW because they were made after I fixed
the module.

It is fixed for future releases in CVS so I am closing out the bug.
